Multiple outlets are reporting that Pitt has hired Northwestern LB coach Randy Bates to serve as defensive coordinator.

Bates will be taking over for Josh Conklin, who has been hired away to serve as Wofford's head coach. He's been a familiar face on the Northwestern sidelines, serving as linebackers coach for the Wildcats for the past 11 seasons prior to jumping for this job with the Panthers. While the bulk of his experience as a coach has come as an assistant, he did serve as defensive coordinator at Louisiana Tech from 2000-05.

According to The Athletic's Nicole Auerbach, a group of parents is "fearful" that suspended Maryland HC D.J. Durkin will return.

Durkin was suspended after the death of former Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair as the team looks into reports of a toxic infrastructure around the football team. The parents -- speaking on condition of anonymity -- told Auerbach that they weren't informed of abusive claims until after McNair's death on June 13, for fear of the parents not believing them. One parent told The Athletic reporter that they believed this was "predetermined," and another claiming they were terrified. This is an awful situation, and it doesn't sound like we're close to the end of these revelations.

Offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan expects Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) to play on Saturday against Colorado.

Gaskin and backup RB Salvon Ahmed were considered "week-to-week" on Monday, but it sounds like the Huskies will have both available against the Buffaloes. Gaskin injured his shoulder against UCLA, and was in-and-out of the overtime loss to Oregon last week. Even with the depth the Huskies have at tailback, his return obviously would be big; especially if he can pair with Ahmed.

Miami redshirt freshman QB N'Kosi Perry has been benched for Malik Rosier.

This is a tough one to figure from the outside. Against FBS teams this year, Rosier is only 42-of-84 (50.0%) for 650 yards and 3/3 TD/INT rate. Perry hasn't exactly lit the world on fire, and he reportedly has had issues grasping the entire playbook, but it's hard to buy the argument that he's a short-term downgrade on what Rosier has shown himself to be. Either way, the writing now seems to be on the wall for Perry's eventual departure. To pull the plug after three a mere three starts isn't just to make a short-term indictment on Perry, it's tipping your hand that your long-term plans may not prominently include him (otherwise, why bench him after three games, risking a transfer, for proven veteran mediocrity you'd previously benched?). Perry will back up Rosier next week against Boston College. Richt says he'll still see the field off the bench.

Miami HC Mark Richt announced that redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier will start next week against Boston College.

Miami is on bye this week before traveling to BC a week from Friday. "Right this minute I think Malik is better equipped from his ability and his experiences to lead this team," Richt said. Rosier started the first four games of the year before he was benched for redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry during the FIU game. Perry started the last three games but Richt pulled the plug on him last week against Virginia after he threw two interceptions in his first six attempts. The Hurricanes lost 16-13, with Rosier not exactly lighting the world on fire (12-of-23 for 171 yards with an interception). For whatever it's worth, Richt says Perry will continue to see the field off the bench. Either way, this situation is a mess.

Illinois sophomore TE Louis Dorsey will transfer.

Dorsey (6'6/225) did not specify in his farewell tweet just why he was transferring out, but he's had a rocky go of it since the end of the 2017 season. The standout tight end -- Dorsey was named to BTN.com's All-Freshman team for the conference after catching 22 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns last fall -- was suspended in the spring for a violation of team rules, a suspension which ate into the first three games of the regular season. He exits Illinois having not caught a pass during the current campaign. Dorsey figures to receive his fair share of interest on the transfer market, at least assuming programs aren't scared away by potential off-field concerns.

Tennessee redshirt senior LB Jonathan Kongbo has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

Kongbo (6'5/254) tore the ACL in his right knee during Saturday's upset win over Auburn. Now that he's been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, his collegiate career has come to an end. The redshirt senior initially signed on with Tennessee as the top JUCO recruit in the 2016 class. His most productive season in Knoxville came in 2017, when he registered 29 tackles and 2.5 sacks while making 10 starts. For the current campaign, Kongbo had started five of six games while compiling 11 tackles and an interception prior to suffering the unfortunate knee injury against the Tigers. Over the summer, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline pegged the linebacker -- he began his time with Tennessee as a defensive end before shifting to OLB this offseason -- as a likely undrafted free agent for the spring. Sophomore Deandre Johnson came in for Kongbo after he left Saturday's game and could be in line for an expanded workload now that the Vols are having to reexamine their options in the front seven

Texas Tech HC Kliff Kingsbury passed along that he "wouldn't say [freshman QB Alan Bowman (lung) is] a full go."

Bowman dressed and tossed around the football prior to last Thursday's win over TCU, but he was not available for that contest after kickoff. The team hasn't offered a definitive word as to just when the freshman gunslinger might be healthy enough to return to action. That said, Kingsbury did indicate that Bowman has been "easing his way back in." He stressed that due to the sensitive nature of the injury (a collapsed lung), the team wants to make sure that he's 100-percent recovered before they move forward with him as an available option. Whether he'll be ready for this weekend's game with Kansas remains an open question. McLane Carter (ankle) or Jett Duffey would start versus the Jayhawks if Bowman can't play in that spot, though Carter's status is likewise up in the air.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 S Jalen Catalon underwent surgery to repair an undisclosed injury concern on Tuesday.

The nature of Catalon's surgery is not currently known. There is no immediate timetable for his return to action. Arkansas, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas are among those seeking out his pledge. He took an official visit to the Razorbacks two weekends ago. Whether his current health concern will have any impact on his recruitment remains to be seen. Rivals ranks Catalon as the No. 153 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Minnesota HC P.J. Fleck said that senior RB Shannon Brooks (knee) was medically-cleared for football action on Sunday, but that his status with the team is "evolving."

A bit to unpack, here. Starting on the health front, Brooks was sidelined by a torn ACL back in early March and was expected to miss the whole of the 2018 season. That he's been given the green light on the medical front is obviously encouraging, but that's not the end of his story. Brooks was arrested on Sunday morning for an alleged domestic assault incident. At this juncture, charges have not yet been filed, though an investigation is in the works. Fleck addressed the situation -- kind of -- on his weekly radio show, saying, "Shannon is back with our football team and his status with the team is evolving. That’s the update I have at this point." He said that the plan had been to bring Brooks back against Nebraska this coming weekend. That would no longer appear to be a given following the senior's arrest, but stay tuned.

Arizona junior QB Khalil Tate (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against UCLA.

Tate (6'2/215) has been dealing with a left ankle injury since Week 2. While he has managed to start each of the subsequent games for the Wildcats, the junior signal-caller was noticeably hobbled against Utah this past Friday, to the point where he was forced out of the game after just two offensive series. Sophomore Rhett Rodriguez took over for the remainder of that contest and will make his first career start this coming weekend with Tate now ruled out. There's no definitive timetable for Tate's return to action.

Oregon freshman T Penei Sewell will miss approximately six weeks with a high ankle sprain.

Ducks HC Mario Cristobal made the announcement Tuesday. Sewell, Oregon's starting left tackle, suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Washington when a defender fell on his leg. Earlier this season, he became the first Oregon freshman offensive lineman to start a season opener since 1997. ESPN ranked the 6-foot-6, 345-pounder as the No. 129 overall player, the No. 6 guard, and the No. 1 prospect out of Utah in the 2018 recruiting class. Oregon shifted starting RT Calvin Throckmorton to the left side following Sewell's injury against the Huskies. Oregon will have to decide if they want to use Throckmorton on the right or left side going forward, and whether they want to roll with backup LT George Moore or backup RT Brady Aiello as a starter for the next month and a half.
